My Swoon for this week comes from:

If I Die
(Soul Screamers #5)

Rachel Vincent
First - The Blurb:

The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies.

But the next scream might be for Kaylee.

Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either.

But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life.


Second - The Swoon:
"What if that wasn't enough to do the trick?" I whispered, made bold by the blatant need churning in his eyes. "What if I were persistently bad?"

"That might require a stronger approach." He leaned toward me and dropped a series of tiny, hot kisses down my neck, headed for my collarbone. I reached up with my free hand to feel his hair - the curls were so soft - and his left hand found the slight curve of my hip, fingers pressing into my skin beneath the hem of my shirt, like they wanted more than they could possibly find there.

"I don't think this is fixing your little problem," I whispered, as his hand wandered slowly over my waist and toward my ribs, over my shirt now.

Tod straightened and gave me a frown. "You should be careful, tossing descriptors like that around in a situation like this. My 'problem' isn't small."

Third - My Thoughts:
So, what did I think of this one? Well, it was no surprise to me that Kaylee and Nash's relationship would eventually fall apart. I mean, after Nash's addiction to Demon Breath and the things he did while he was under the influence, Sabine's constant presence, and Kaylee's trust issues, they didn't really stand a chance of making it work.

Was I disappointed that things didn't turn out for them? Yeah, I was. I like Nash and I kind of felt sorry for him when their relationship ended.

How do I feel about Tod? Let's just say, he's growing on me more and more.

My rating: 4 out of 5
